Raspberry Pi Water Gun Kit

For those of you interested in building your own wireless water cannon powered by Raspberry Pi, you might be interested in the new Water Gun Kit created by Joe Hoskisson based in Salt Lake City.

The kit comes almost ready for your use and provides educational introduction to electronics and robotic programming for children aged 12 and above. The water gun is battery powered and wireless which allows it be placed it in strategic positions. You can pivot it left an right with the touch of a button and make it squirt by pressing space bar.

Features of the Wireless Raspberry Pi Water Gun Kit:

• complete Python code to get the water gun to squirt and pivot

Along the way in the building process you will learn about:

• How to setup the Raspberry Pi
• How to connect to the Raspberry Pi with your desktop or laptop over WiFi
• Basic circuitry using components such as resistors, transistors, and diodes
• General Purpose Input Output pins on the Raspberry Pi (these pins allow you to control external devices)
• Solderless prototyping boards or breadboards
• Basic programming concepts in the Python language
• Basic commands in the Linux terminal (command line)
